The Role

We’re recruiting for a Lead Service Designer here at J ustice Digital, to be part of our warm and collaborative team, within HMPPS. This is a 1 year Fixed term appointment covering maternity leave.

These are exciting times at Justice Digital. We have a clear vision — to develop a digitally-enabled justice system that’s better and simpler for everyone. We’re looking for talented people who are passionate about this mission and ready for the challenge.

We have a thriving design community of 70+ designers who all work in multidisciplinary teams, alongside user researchers, business analysts, product owners, delivery managers and developers, to deliver world-class, user-centred services.

As well as doing great work, we’re creating a place that’s great to work in. We offer brilliant training opportunities, excellent kit and support from expert colleagues. On top of that, you’ll find flexible working, an inclusive culture and a place where your opinion is valued.

The role

In Justice Digital, our teams are developing simpler, clearer and faster services for prisoners, people on probation and those that supervise them. We’re building these to help people break the cycle of crime. Reoffending rates are very high in the UK and we’re working hard to help people avoid reoffending. In building these services we are contributing to keeping members of the public safe from criminal behaviour. We also strive to enable front line and headquarters staff do their jobs more efficiently and effectively by reducing the burden of administration and by providing the data they need for good decision making.

A lead designer is an expert practitioner who influences and mentors others. You will be expected to work with service owners and the Head of Digital to influence design direction and support designers across teams to do their best work.

Working closely with the other MoJ Design Leads, you’ll also be a part of advancing our approach across the department, helping to grow our design culture, and standardising and systemising the way we work to allow the design function to scale.

As a Lead designer, you will:

People & community

  • Lead the recruitment of a talented and diverse team of designers that meet the growing needs of Justice Digital
  • Support the professional development of designers through coaching, line management & career progression
  • Lead Communities of Practice that inspire designers to learn, share best practice and collaborate on strategic problems.

Design standards & operations

  • Work with other Design Leads to define, develop and embed design standards that ensure all our design work is consistently inclusive, accessible and easy to use.
  • Support our Design Operations specialist to standardise and systemietise our tools and processes as we scale

MoJ Digital Strategy
